Under the Microscope: Mobile Gaming in Egypt

Posted Jun 25, 2020

In every edition of Under the Microscope, our research proves that there is no typical gamer. Instead, there is a wide variety of mobile gaming consumers, with different habits and preferences, across the globe, down to each country. Collaborating with On Device Research has given us the data to distinguish these players from those of other countries and this week we are looking at mobile gamers from Egypt.

According to Statista, the number of mobile gamers in Egypt has been steadily increasing and will amount to over 16 million users in 2020. Furthermore, Statista expects revenue to reach $217 by the end of the year.
